First it comes with a quantitative test, including basic math, brainteaser, coding and option pricing stuff. Then it follows with a phone screen lasting about 30 min. In the end it is a super day interview with 3 quant strates.

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Credit Suisse in November 2009.

    Interview Details

    Two rounds of phone interviews with the company. Asked questions about work experience, programming, and stochastic calculus. First interview went pretty smoothly. The second one follows the next day and the interviewer asked a bunch of short, disconnected questions in each category mentioned above. It got pretty weird because he didn't seem to be interested in what I said but kept moving onto the next topic.
